    Hi everyone,
    So my expecting my 4th child in May 2021. So I'm very early. But during my last pregnancies my husband and I had a boy name picked out but we ended up with girls.

    So if this baby is a boy, his name will be Ryan Thomas.

    I need help on the girls middle name.

    MacKenzie Joy

    My husband is italian and he likes the italian version of joy, which is Gioia and sounds like "joy-ya"
    It can also be spelled "Joi"

    I prefer Joy but I think Joi would be a good compromise.

    What is everyone's opinion?

    As the father is Italian, I would go with the original spelling Gioia, to honor that part of her heritage.

    I'd go with Gioia, it's lovely and is a link to her heritage.
